Liked: The majority of the staff was helpful and nice. Bruno is very personable. I really like how they have mini safes in the room for all your valuables and pull out drawers for the rest of your luggage. Also, hand towels in all the bathrooms. The rooftop patio and downstairs are great for socializing and meeting people. Pancakes in the morning and the hostel dinners are very good as well. Good location in the Alfama district and only a 15 min walk from the city center.

Disliked: None.

Liked: Great place to meet other travellers. Nice breakfast and roof terrace. Good location, though a bit tricky to find as other travellers have stated. I stayed in the girl dorm which was very nice. Super nice staff!! Would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: The walls are very thin and the water pipes are quite loud, which wakes you up every time someone turns on the water. A bit tricky to find the hostel if you come from Santa Apolonia station, I spent a good while looking for it.

Liked: It is an amazing location right in the heart of the Alfama bunched up in this historical neighbourhood with local people. I was lucky enough to stay there when there was Fiesta time, which really made the place atmospheric and despite being very busy felt totally safe. The staff are nice and the place is quirky.

Disliked: To be honest one night was enough as the rooms were very hot depute being a cold night in June and there were no fans. Once you've 'done' the Alfama, it's more convenient to be more central to get to places more quickly and I know it is limited by the historic building but for me it was just a bit cramped and claustrophobic.

Liked: close contact to the receptionist and easily got to know other guests. Nice terrace and awesome fex for breakfast. Nice offers from the hostel to discover the city or to have a great portuguese meal in the hostel with others.

Disliked: thin walls. quite loud because of wooden planks as floor.

Liked: Loved the family atmosphere here amongst solo travellers from all over so much that I returned after a few days in Dublin. The dinners that they put on often are fairly priced compared to restaurant prices and delicious with lots of free wine or sangria on BBQ night. The staff are super friendly and learn your name which makes it feel more like a family hostel. The facilities were also great, and the hostel is in a really nice, historical part of Lisboa, and if you are wandering around the city, you can always go to the other two 'sister' hostels for rest or wifi which is great! Breakfast was free and tasty with pancakes (crepes), orange, pineapple, juice and toast. Sitting up on the rooftop patio was really nice in the morning sun!

Disliked: Wifi could be a bit stronger out on the patio, but that doesn't matter when you have lots of travellers to talk to!

Liked: It was in a great location. Very home-y feeling. Old house converted into a hostel. The staff was really friendly. Breakfast was delicious.

Disliked: During the winter, it is a cold walk to the other floors and the outside patio is too cold to eat in.

Liked: This hostel is a great place for a traveller who wants to chill out but still be in a good location to see Lisbon and it's sights. The staff were super friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the beds and showers were some of the best I've stayed in for a hostel. There's plenty of activities to get involved in, I can't recommend the day trip to Sintra enough, my tour guide Pedro was fantastic and I had a great day. Overall a great place to see Lisbon and unwind afterwards.

Disliked: Thomas left no negative feedback.

Liked: First the facilities were amazing! The view from the hostel made it worth the rate. It was so tempting to Sit and read or write in my journal . Also the staff was so friendly and helpful. All kinds of directions and recommendations of places to see! The beds were comfortable and the free breakfast way delish!!!

Disliked: For me it was a little far from the center of town. Also the building is older so At one point the door lock just kept spinning around. They were very quick to get the problem fixed!

Liked: Nice, quiet hostel with fantastic kitchen, courtyard and balcony areas. The showers and toilet areas were not great, but useable. Most staff members were very nice and helpful. You should be aware that a lot of families seem to stay here (with little children).

Disliked: Pancakes were a nice novelty but the entire breakfast was entirely too sugary for a good start to the day. The only savoury option was a piece of bread, and only fresh item were poor quality oranges. Having said that, the pancakes were very nice but they only had jams and sugar to go with it (we only saw one lemon in our 7 day stay. Another negative point is that the hostel has a pretty good security system that some staff don't bother to utilise. There is a security camera at the door where you should show your hostel bracelet to be let in, but one staff member in particular didn't bother to check the video and would often leave the door wide open (which isn't great because we'd seen pickpockets operating in the area).
